This grassroots documentary film project seeks to challenge the 'civilised' story of separation. Disillusioned by a cultural story of consumption and alienation, a newly married couple are called to action. Carrying with them their unborn child, they embark on a year-long journey around the UK, searching for the seeds of an alternative culture and with it hope for the future. We follow the filmmakers as they speak to grassroots activists alongside the pioneering voices of Satish Kumar (The Ecologist), Polly Higgins (Ecocide Lawyer), Mac Macartney (Embercombe), Bruce Parry (Explorer), Mark Boyle (Moneyless Manifesto), Martin Shaw(School of Myth), Glennie Kindred (Artist and writer), the late Patrick Whitefield (Permaculturist) and Simon Fairlie (The Land). (Supervised Children are welcome and free to this event).
